We stayed in Ram Sea I, unit 509 in August 2012. It was amazing!!! That unit is a corner unit and I would say you would definitely want to be on that side of the building. There is a smaller hotel next to it so you have an unobstructed view from your side windows. The unit is huge!! The pictures do not do it justice. Almost everything has been updated as well. Beds were very comfortable. Building staff helpful and friendly. I had one minor thing I called for help - the WIFI was connecting intermittently. They had their phone/IT person in touch with me in less than an hour (it was probably even quicker than that, but who keeps track of time on vacation?)
We have stayed on this beach before but this was our first time at Ram Sea. We will be back!! The pool was a very good size compared to hotels in the area. The jacuzzi was large as well. The deck areas were very nice. Ram Sea I has the jacuzzi, Ram Sea II has the pool. Both are for use by guests of either building. There were always plenty of chairs.
This unit's kitchen is well-stocked with tons of dishes, glasses, pots, pans, etc. Even rubbermaid containers for leftovers. We didn't lack for any utensils, etc. The furniture is new - it's comfortable and tasteful. The bedding was very pretty and soft. The closets are both walk-in closets and there was plenty of dresser space too.
A wish list item for this unit would be an in-unit washer and dryer. We did use the one in the building, but it was smaller than I would have wanted and would have been nice to have one in-unit.
As first-time condo renters (we've always stayed at a hotel), we loved having so much space and a full kitchen. A small supply of paper towels and kleenex would be nice to have with the rental. I have heard of some condo rentals giving a 'starter basket' of supplies. They do supply you with dishwasher soap for one wash so that is helpful. Plenty of towels were provided. We had two adults and one 4 year old in our party and there were more towels than we could use.
We will definitely be back to this unit!!
